I never look forward to running in the cold. It doesn’t take long to warm up once I get moving, but the first steps out the door are the hardest to take. Last year I bought a new outfit to help motivate me to get out there and run anyway.
There is a lot of trial and error involved in perfecting layered clothing. Finding the right balance between warm-enough-to-avoid-frostbite and violently-peeling-off-layers-after-mile-one can be quite a challenge. From inside the house it looks 10 times colder than it feels and I’ll usually find myself way over dressed.
Since cold weather running trumps running in place on a hamster wheel, I always prefer to suit up and head out into the elements. More often than not, I’m pleasantly surprised by the dreamy combination of crisp air & quiet snow that accompany my winter runs. But, I never remember this until I’m violently peeling off layers of clothing after mile one.
This is my favorite cold weather running wear – 35 degrees or colder – that helps me leave my warm house for a cold run.
